  • When entering there is a great shop where you buy your entrance ticket. There is then an area where there is a tea shop, motor museum, and the gravel walkway to the side of the house. Unfortunately th...  read more »
  • We visited in the after visiting the British Wildlife Centre which I have also reviewed and stayed for an hour or two. It did not take too long to walk around the museum which is not too large, but ha...  read more »
  • Amazing array of different birds & vintage cars, a large venue so could be a day out with picnic or eat at the rather nicely old fashioned cafe. 
  • Completely ruined by poor customer service. Went into the cafe for lunch where we purchased food and drink however had bought some of own to save money. There were many empty tables and another family who also had a combination of cafe food and packed lunches. However a member of staff approached us while my eldest daughter was in the toilet and told us we could not eat our own food in the cafe. She said that my youngest, 2 years old, could continue eating if I hid the lunch box. When my 7 year old returned from the toilet she asked for a sandwich which I assumed would not be a problem as the woman had allowed her sister to eat. However the woman returned and said that as she had not seen my daughter before she could not eat and insisted I take the food away from her resulting in my daughter becoming very upset and tearful. She could not understand why her sister could eat but she could not. Whilst I understand places prefer you to only consume their food, this was a cold day and there were no sheltered outdoor areas to eat. We purchased food from the cafe itself, and were not taking up seats otherwise needed by paying customers as there were many empty tables. More importantly there was another family eating home brought food and yet nothing was said to them. And what makes me most angry is that my daughter was reduced to tears because one child was allowed to eat where another was not. If the rules were the same for everyone I could understand however I feel my family were singled out and treated harshly and unfairly ruining a much anticipated day out.
  • Great cafe, great food, very friendly staff. I was there with a group after a long festival so we were exhausted and they really took extra effort to look after us and be hospitable. Two thumbs up.
  • Awesome place to visit with the children with lots of things to see and do. Shame they don't use a local pest control company as there rats would be under control quicker!
  • I just love old cars and the people who collect them are doing such a great job .wonderful.
  • This is an excellent display of some of the most evocative vehicles of previous decades. Well laid out with accessories around the perimeter it is well worth a visit. A wide variety of vehicles from 1898 tricycles to Ducati motor bikes to racing and rally cars. Also a fire engine in a striking green, most unusual. Go and visit and I recommend the scones, cream and jam when you have finished. A really good day out. thank you. Max Adams
